Workforce Care is a ministry that provides intercessory prayer and voluntary use chaplain availability to selected Gulf Coast workplaces for employee assistance for coping with personal stress, corporate changes, or personnel crises at no cost and no obligation as a per-need ministry provided by a trained chaplain.
We are available to pray for employees, for executives facing difficult decisions, or for simply interceding for your business to be successful in its mission and glory to God.
Our chaplain’s available ear is an effective way to head-off safety, performance, productivity, and resilience issues necessary for success.
Just as chaplain’s presence and availability is welcomed for patients healing toward their disease, just like for military, policeman, and fireman’s perspectives toward their mission, just like for sports athlete’s perspectives toward staying focused on the game, so it is for the betterment of employees perspectives toward coping with the stress of home and work simultaneously…[learn more]
We don’t really want to think about it but the statistics show that workplace violence is a growing problem and workplace homicides are the second leading cause of death for women.
If your workforce is dealing with a tragedy, violent occurrence, or a death of a co-worker, our chaplain can come for a visit and make himself available to listen and encourage your team in the deep spiritual aspect of grief and worry…[learn more]

We know that finding a pastor to officiate a wedding or a memorial service is difficult if you are not a member of a congregation. However, a chaplain may be available to provide traditional clergy services , even if you are not connected to church fellowship…[learn more]
The approach of a chaplain is to simply be available not to proselytize or initiate spiritual discussion without invitation. In fact, the ministry of a Chaplain is often refereed to as simply a ministry of presence. We’re listeners and we’re trained to respond according to the individuals spiritual frame of reference.
Our chaplain is available for specific crises, individual employee needs, consulting with operational management regarding religious or relationship issues, or simply being present to the workforce by request, like as a hospital chaplain is present for patients.
We have a network of trained chaplains available, but our primary Workforce Care chaplain is Steve Durkac, pastor of CrossHope Chapel.
Steve is a former hospital chaplain at Providence Hospital and with other hospitals, and offers the same type of chaplain availability to employees in a business setting as he did for patients in a hospital setting.
Steve brings a unique perspective toward the workplace as a chaplain, because he once worked as a manager and supervisor trainer for Radisson Hospitality Worldwide and is the author of “Leader Lifts: 21 Motivational Lessons for Workplace Success” .
